How can I clear extra coding when I copy/paste from Microsoft Word into Laulima?

Do you or your students encounter this?

“When I copy and paste from Word, a bunch of weird symbols or coding gets put into my text. What can I do to fix this?” If you try to copy and paste from Word into a text editor box in Laulima and you get an error message that says it can not be posted because of the coding in the text, it is most likely the hidden formatting codes that Microsoft adds to their files.”

If you are encountering this, use Firefox as your web browser and follow these steps.
